Delivery process includes training the company's CSR team on the system working and training to IT Support staffs for system, database and code maintenance in long run.

The project was delivered within strict deadlines and was also well accepted by the CSR division and end users.

Assets Management System

Web Application Development Company
Information Technology
Flex SDK 3.5, Flex builder 3, ActionScript 3, LAMP, YII Framework, SVN

Designed and implemented an application with several modules that allows Inventory/Furnishing Management, Labor Types, Work Orders and Show Management. The user(administrator) has the capability of entering new furnishings that can be purchased/borrowed by the customers by creating orders for them. Similarly new labor can be added which can be hired by customers. The furnishings and labors thus ordered can be used in the shows. The user can add/edit details for the shows.

Each section has the functionality for adding a new asset type and editing existing asset types. The interface provides a listing of existing assets and a filter option, which provides means of viewing the list, based on the filter criteria selected. The user can take a print out of the list as well as which is displayed according to the filter criteria. The list can also be exported as a CSV file.

The Flex front end uses remoting and AMF to communicate with Yii backend.

Online Collaboration Tool

Photoshop and InDesign Plugins Development Company
Flex 3, ActionScript 3.0, FMS 3.0, CodeIgniter, PHP, sqlite 6, XML, RTMP, Apache, Linux, memcached, SVN

Designed and implemented a collaboration tool in Flex for the publishing industry that allows users to login, view and comment on designs submitted by a custom indesign plugin.

The Flex application provides features such as pan and zoom and provides real time updates to logged in users. The application also shows all active users and allows them to participate in chat and place notes/tacks on the design files/images. The notes can be textual or voice recordings. The idea is for users to be able to provide feedback on designs submitted by the indesign user in a collaborative manner.

Challenges we faced were with providing real time updates on all open instances of the application. The communication between the instances and the server was based on XML data exchange over HTTP and RTMP to provide real time updates. Code was also optimized to minimize load time of images after user login.

The services for Flex were implemented using PHP with the codeigniter framework. The backend we used was sqlite. A mobile version of the services were also implemented later for a similar iPhone app with limited features.

Telemedicine Video Conferencing Widget

EMR/PMS System Development
Flex 4.5, Actionscript 3.0, FMS 4, PHP, JavaScript, XML, MySql, SVN

Designed and Implemented a web based video conferencing widget to be used as an extension to a health care application. The web application implements a link that allows users to schedule a meeting in advance and send an email with the invitation link to the patient/group of attendees. The attendees can then click on the link and join the conference. The widget allows for recording the conference sessions and presents users with the ability to group chat as well as see each other and talk on an audio video interface. At the end of the conference session the users can download their copy of the text chat and recorded video. Among features we implemented standard controls for video/ audio including controls to mute/pause video stream and control the mic and speakers volume. We also implemented the option to ping users to get their attention which causes the widget on attendees machines to ring. In consideration of bandwidth we also implemented Peer 2 Peer connections on demand when recording of conference was not needed. Flash Media Server was used as the back end server and implemented meeting requests synchronization and authentication for user widgets.

Multi-Touch Screen Application for Product Demonstration

Computer Hardware Manufacturer
Computer Hardware
Adobe Air, Flex 4, Cairngorm, FlashBuilder 4.5, Flex SDK 4.5.1, XML

Designed and Implemented a multi-touch cross platform adobe air application. The application runs in full screen mode on large touch screens and allows users to browse through categories and view products details. Implemented QR code generation for products to store actual URL to allow users to buy the product online from their mobile devices. Implemented swipe and touch gestures which were not supported on standard windows 7 devices. The application also required fine tuning and optimizations which were detected late in development due to the image sizes for the products that we were fetched in real time. Implemented a standalone application that starts when the system reboots and runs every 24 hours to fetch product images based on latest XML input file. This application also optimizes the downloaded images which allows for the app to read data locally and speeds up load time.

Cross-platform Touch screen application for the real estate industry

IT solutions provider
Adobe Air, Flex 4, Drupal, AMF, Remoting, Cairngorm, Sqlite, FlashBuilder 4.5, Flex SDK 4.5.1

Designed and Implemented an adobe air application for touch screen devices including ipad, iphone and android platforms. The application allows real estate agencies and professionals  to display their properties in a slick rich user interface which supports touch gestures. The application allows the admin to configure the MLS listing url which is then submitted to a drupal system that extracts and feeds property data to the application. We used AMF/Remoting for speedy data exchange between the application and the server. Implemented an interactive gallery to display property details and images. Implemented swipe gesture for touch. Implemented and interfaced with google maps api to display property location on google map. Implemented email sending feature to allow a user to click and quickly send email with property details to friends.

Online Photo Framing Application

Software Testing Solutions and Services
Flex 3.0, Actionscript 3.0, LAMP, PHP, MySQL, jQuery, codeIgniter, twitter bootstrap, XML, ImageMagick, paypal, SVN

Designed and Implemented a photo framing flex widget with a CMS admin that allows for users to select a frame and view their preferred picture framed online. The application allows the user to either upload an image or select from a preset list of categorized images. After the image has been selected the user is then directed to a Flex widget which allows the user to select different frames and define upto 3 mats to then see their picture framed online. The widget also provides the ability to upload a room view or select from existing room views to then place the framed picture and see how it would look in their room. Once the user has selected the frame he likes he can then proceed to the checkout screen. We implemented the payment process and integrated with paypal for online payments. The user can also just order a custom frame by specifying the dimensions without selecting or viewing their picture in the frame. The admin login allows for managing the different frames and pictures and their costs. The admin also allows for viewing customers and their orders. One of the requirements we had was to minimize the number of images used for the frame and we accomplished this by limiting upload for a frame to the corner image and a slice of the side bar. Once we were done with the application flow and functionality, we had to work on optimizing the load time for the generation of the final framed picture. We used code profiling, browser traffic analyzer tools and caching techniques to re-engineer aspects of the implementation and finally were able to cut down the load time considerably.
